Can Martin Scorsese pull off a horror movie? Is Glasgow the new Venice? And what's Ricky Gervais up to in Reading? Our critics pick next year's hottest tickets

Film

Cemetery Junction

Having conquered Hollywood, Ricky Gervais is coming home. With his long-time collaborator Stephen Merchant, he has set out to create a British film in the tradition of Billy Liar and the Likely Lads – and of course his own masterpiece The Office – about three blokes working for the Prudential insurance company in Gervais's hometown of Reading. Released on 7 April.

A Single Man

The smart money says Colin Firth will be bringing home a certain gold, bald-headed statuette for his performance as a bereaved gay man in Los Angeles. Based on the 1964 novel by Christopher Isherwood, the movie – fashion designer Tom Ford's directorial debut – follows one day in the life of Firth's literature academic as he confronts his own mortality. Released on 12 February. »

Viewers would prefer Ewan McGregor over Matt Smith as next Doctor Who

23 December 2009 3:47 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

When David Tennant hands over the keys to the Tardis on New Year's Day it will be the end of the most popular incarnation of Doctor Who of all time.

But there's bad news for new Doctor Matt Smith. In a poll of British TV viewers, more than 21 per cent of respondents put Ewan McGregor as their first choice to take over as the new Time Lord, with Matt Smith coming sixth.

Research commissioned by leading comparison site Gocompare.com reveals that of the 10 Doctors we've seen so far David Tennant is easily the most popular, with over 45 per cent naming him as their favourite.

Tom Baker, who played the Doctor from 1974 to 1981 in his trademark hat and long woolly scarf, was second with nearly 20 per cent of the votes, and Jon Pertwee's 'dandy' Doctor was third with just over 10 per cent. Tom Baker was the most popular Doctor among 36-to-40-year-olds. »

Telly Ticker: Jeremy Clarkson's crash, Joanna Lumley's mistress, and Strictly's latest stumble

27 November 2009 8:36 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

All the TV news that isn't quite fit to print

Vroom! Screech! Bang! Helloooo, officer. Jeremy Clarkson reveals on tonight's edition of the Jonathan Ross show that he was breathalysed by police after "a small crash" while filming Top Gear last week. He was cleared. Remarkably, he insists that he is a cautious driver. He's presumably not counting that time he did 186mph through a London tunnel, or when he drove a tank through a brick wall for the programme ...

• Dirty hotel sex. Pinot grigio summits. Displacement muffin-baking. The Bristol-based bonkfest Mistresses has it all. Now it's getting Joanna Lumley, too. The star is joining the show to plum things up a notch when the final, third series starts shooting next spring. She's playing Vivienne, the bossy mother of serial disaster zone Katie (Sarah Parish), if you're interested. Obvs, the main question is: will there be hot Gurkha action?

Parish Baby Joy

13 October 2009 2:56 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

British actress Sarah Parish is pregnant with her second child - nine months after her eight-month-old daughter lost her battle with a heart problem.

The Holiday star's first child, Ella-Jayne, was born five weeks prematurely with a hole in her heart and, after months of intensive care and surgery, she passed away in January.

But Parish and her actor husband James Murray are celebrating again after discovering the star is pregnant again.

Producers of her hit BBC show Mistresses have reportedly delayed the filming of the next series of the saucy drama to ensure Parish has a stress-free pregnancy.

A pal of the actress tells the Sunday Mirror newspaper, "Sarah's thrilled to be pregnant and wants to make sure she does everything in her power to deliver a happy, healthy baby." »

Big-name guest stars add magic to Merlin

14 September 2009 10:16 AM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Arthurian adventure series Merlin returns to BBC1 this weekend with a host of big-name guest stars joining the regular cast for its 13-week run.

Having enchanted audiences of more than 6.3 million in its inaugural series, the show promises more magic, mystery, adventure and romance for Season 2 as the young wizard struggles to keep his powers hidden in the increasingly perilous world of Camelot.

Mackenzie Crook (Pirates Of The Caribbean, The Office, Skins, Demons) is to guest-star in the opening episode as the creepy Cedric (pictured right), who is determined to muscle in on Merlin's position as Arthur's right-hand-man - much to the sorcerer's frustration.

Sarah Parish (Mistresses, Cutting It) will play a horrible troll masquerading as the beautiful Lady Catrina; Adrian Lester (Hustle, Bonekickers) is the devious Myror; Charles Dance (Bleak House, Gosford Park) will guest-star as Aredian, the sinister Witchfinder; and Santiago Cabrera (Heroes) returns as the dashing Lancelot. »

[DVD Review] Mistresses: Volume One

16 June 2009 10:00 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Money. Sex. Death. Lies. Love. Betrayal. Affairs. Marriage. Scandal. Mistresses.

There’s good television. There’s bad television. And then there’s Mistresses. In general, soap operas and reality shows are considered to be bad TV. It’s not that you don’t ever watch it; it’s just that you recognize a certain badness and lack of insight and any genuine storytelling. At every turn they’re out to create drama, keep you hooked, and basically keep you semi-zoned out as the hours pass during a long day of Days of Our Lives or an afternoon marathon of America’s Next Top Model (boy, has that show slumped over the seasons). Oppositely, good television shows are ones like the HBO gold, The Sopranos, or a highly rated cop or hospital drama. These shows are expensive to produce and play with the quality of a movie.

Then there are shows like BBC America’s Mistresses. »

Three sign on for 'Pillars of the Earth'

8 June 2009 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A new TV maxi-series is trying to buck the trend and bring back appointment viewing for fictional sagas, a la "The Thorn Birds" or, more recently and modestly, "Angels in America" or "Broken Trail." Most of the big Euro stations have lined up to air "The Pillars of the Earth," but so far there are no broadcast takers in the U.S. or the U.K.

A Germany-Canada co-production spearheaded by Munich-based Tandem Communications and Montreal-based Muse Entertainment, the eight-hour saga, based on Ken Follett's best-seller, will be directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan, who has helmed episodes of "Heroes" and "Saving Grace" and was Steven Spielberg's first assistant director on "Saving Private Ryan" and "Schindler's List."

"Pillars" starts lensing June 22 in Hungary and Austria. The premiere is set for the second half of 2010.

Ian McShane, who starred on HBO's "Deadwood," will play Waleran; Donald Sutherland takes the role as Bartholomew; and Rufus Sewell, »

"Mistresses" at the TCA Press Tour

11 January 2009 10:06 PM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

L to R: Sharon Small, Orla Brady, and Shelley Conn (1/10/09)

Mistresses is a six-episode British drama series coming to BBC America in February about a group of female friends with relationship problems — including Shelley Conn (Nina's Heavenly Delights) as a promiscuous, commitment event planner who falls for one of her clients, played by Anna Torv, who is now the star of the Fox supernatural drama Fringe. (Americans who don't mind some spoilers can read our review of the first season.)

The show is a hit in the U.K., with a sizeable audience of about 6 million viewers, according to Mistresses executive producer Douglas Rae — "mainly women, but men buy the DVDs, I suspect looking for extras which aren't on it."

Most of the cast (minus Sarah Parish, who plays Dr. Katie Roden), creators, and BBC execs were on a panel on Saturday at the Television Critics Association Winter Tour in L. »
